High end or not, it seems a Chevelle will bring a higher price at resale

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

That's a question of "demand" for them… The more demand, the higher the asking prices. Of course rarity has something to do in the price up to a certain point but I think demand has a bigger effect on pricing than rarity.…and about demand, there is more of it for a hardtop Chevelle than for a post car rarer or not.

Re: YUM! 1970 Olds Rallye 350

There’s one for sale in my area for 30k. It is a flip, which I have nothing against. He bought it for 20k. I’ve seen it at car shows and it’s in excellent shape

I like all A Bodies from 64-72....except for the Pontiacs from 68-72. I can't stand their front end and Enduro Bumpers.

But I understand why GM made them that way. Had to have some variety for the consumers.

I'd like my next car to be a '71 SS. But after that, I'd do a 70-72 Cutlass or Skylark in a heartbeat. Maybe even a convertible.

I've seen plenty of Buick and Olds guys who were trying to sell their cars for good money that bemoaned the fact that their cars weren't a Chevy or Pontiac. The market is stronger for the latter.....FWIW.

Please feel free to say "no" or simply not respond, but do you mind sharing what you paid and sold it for?

It's harder to gauge the value of these cars b/c you just don't see them as often as a Pontiac or Chevy. But I dig them.

I paid $18,500.. sold for $21,000. I feel I sold it kinda cheap.. but needed to sell something. I did throw a couple hundred at it prior to selling. It was a good car but had some issues. It needed a clutch and a front end rebuild. Car was originally from PA. I bought it off a guy in Las Vegas. He bought it off Bring A Trailer.

'67 ElCamino - Pro touring
and a few Pontiacs..

Claude, you are absolutely right... "rare" has nothing to do with the value, its the desireability… Now if its desireable AND rare, then sure the value can skyrocket...

I like those Ralley 350's, but IMO they are usually priced to high for me...

As for the hardtop vs post, another personal decision... Aside from the "openness" of rolling the side windows down, not much difference with the 68+cars... But IMO, IF looking for "musclecars", the post version does seem to look more hard-core performance (lighter and stiffer)…

I am generally into 66 Chevelles, and those have a taller roof that the hardtop, and they never came as "fancy" as a Malibu, so pretty big difference in style...

Once you go RAT, you never go back...

Re: YUM! 1970 Olds Rallye 350

There are three of them advertised on Ebay… One at $36,998. one at $34,995. and another one at $35,500. Nice but I prefer a 442 with a 455 engine…
